Customer Question

I have a 2 yr old ***** ***** terrier. I have been having to bring him to the vet for the last month and a half with a rash on his belly that gets a little better with the meds but will not go away. I'm at a loss for what to do next. After researching about the rash, i know that it is a bacteria infection that i prob. need to fight from the inside out. He has had shots and oral steroids and antibiotics. what should i do next to get this to GO AWAY???? I was told I can choose a dermatologist, but I TRULY can't afford to go....Help Please
